Here's a quick wrap-up of weekend activity. (You Bradley Cooper fans now awaiting his arrival to shoot the film Dark Fields will have to chill till mid-March.)

Friday night at Dusk in Caesars in Atlantic City, American Idol runner-up Blake Lewis performed songs off his new album in front of a packed house and stayed late drinking champagne. He dined at Mia restaurant before the show.

Allison Lubert and Heather Esposito of the new Sweet Freedom Bakery (1424 South St.) got a call from Alicia Silverstone, requesting vegan/gluten-free goods. On Saturday, they decided to hand-deliver the order to Silverstone as she's starring in Manhattan Theatre Club's production of Time Stands Still. Included in the pack were a dozen chocolate cookie sandwiches.

And headline this one Harry Pod-der: That was Emma Watson in a party of seven, rolling late into Pod (about 11:30 p.m.) after a dance performance at Drexel. The group enjoyed a family style meal of rock n’ spicy tuna, kobe beef, shrimp dumplings, lettuce wraps, macadamia chicken, wild mushroom fried rice, and chicken pad Thai. For dessert, the party shared a sorbet plate and Fluffernutter spring roll. The group was the last to leave the restaurant, about 1 a.m.
